There are seasons I've worn burnout as a badge of honor. Hustled and hurried my self past the point of exhaustion. Friend, I get it. But living distracted, drained, and disconnected is not a formula for creativity or growth.
I'm a watercolor mixed-media fine artist and author dedicated to guiding you into a practice of daily wonder and thriving creativity.
Lover of open roads, blank pages, and wild spaces. Wandering along shorelines and through forests feeds my soul.
My art and writing explores the connections between moment and metaphor, pigment and prose; relationship and resilience, all steeped in WONDER as a habit, and the beauty of our unfolding stories.
Most often, you'll find me in my studio in northeast Florida with a paintbrush or pencil in one hand, coffee in the other, and the world's finest Chief Cuddle Officer curled up by my side.
Art is so much more than paint and paper. It holds in its core the power to change the way we see the world around us, and ourselves in it.
To create open, honest, vulnerable spaces of connection that give language to our deepest emotions.
To remind us even our most broken places can be fused with gold. To show us we are worthy of being seen, significant and celebrated.
I spent 20+ years in the international nonprofit world leading regional projects on 3 continents.
I've seen firsthand the power storytelling and creativity has to bring healing, change narratives, and elevate the voices of those living in some of the world's most marginalized and conflict-torn places.
Here are some of the places and people I hope to serve through mine.
CURRENT COLLECTIONS & CAUSES COMING SOON.
Stare at a sunset. Soak in the starlight. Make messes on purpose. Experience about how wonder wakes us up. Sparks creativity. Gives us tools to reconnect to our resilience and forge greater courage.
Wonder isn't just found in Grand-Canyon-sized adventures. It is waiting in the wild quiet within as we embrace every day moments of beauty, connection and meaning.
Running after what sets your soul on fire doesn't mean you have to run solo.
Running after what sets your soul on fire doesn't have to be a lonely journey.
